Bewildered by Love

Bewildered by Love,

My Heart calls out from a vast arena of joyful tears.

Light! My Light! I am bemused and speechless by

Thy presence, Your burning flames, turning my veil

Of sorrow into pleasantries; my bane of agony into Delight.

Thank You for the banquet par excellence. For eons,

I was a beggar at the portals of Thy distillery, seeking

Only Your sweet wine. When the Sitar has lost its lustre,

And its chords out of harmony with the Dao, then there’s

Only the agony of longing, left to the confused Lover, trying

To find his way Home. Oh Queen, tune well my Sitar!

Come! My Beloved, Thy evocative melodies are hauntingly

Beautiful! Let me play with Your cute locks, kiss Thy sweet scent

In this charmed oasis of pomegranate flowers, where birds

Become serenaded by the glories of another golden dawn.

How I long for immersion, in this river of Thy Rhapsody, so that

Like drunken mystic Lovers, my Soul will start singing of Thy sweetness.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th March, 2020
